My Social Media for Churches workshop Hiwassee District Training

I am proud to co-lead on the Social Media for Churches workshop with Rev. Will Conner at the Hiwassee District Training Event for the United Methodist Church. The presentation on social media for churches is on February 10, 2019 in Cleveland, Tennessee. The workshop is geared to anyone who is on the church social media team, pastors and lay members who are curious to learn more.

What will churches gain?

A theological understanding of outreach via social media
Why and how nothing posted online disappears
Social media preferences of Generation X through Generation Alpha. (It's not just about reaching the millennials anymore.)
Why Facebook is used by Millennials and why Generation Z doesn't. 
Best practices for using social media at your church. 

Did I mention that all this is free?

Although registration is not required we are taking a head count for seating purposes. Contact me by email at gayle@gaylecrabtree.com or leave a comment below if you would like to attend.

New #BeBodacious merch in my Zazzle store

BeBodacious merch now in our Zazzle store! #BeBodacious is all about living out loud. It's the idea that nothing will hold you back from achieving your goals - whatever they may be. Whether it's climbing a mountain or driving one, being bodacious is the mindset that keeps you going.

Zazzle offers top quality products. Our profit margin is 10% and their products aren't always inexpensive. One of the reasons that I'm partnering with them to offer the merch is because of their frequent promotions.

All the items that I have ordered in the past have been high grade, professional items. Take this mug for example. There are totes, more mugs, t-shirts and many more great items where this came from.

Encouraging and Empowering

I consider encouraging and empowering others to be one of my true joys. Life tries its best to beat us down. All too often our lives are full of baggage that won't fit in a suitcase. The weight of carrying it drains our energy and keeps our eyes off of the good things that life has to offer. But (and this is a big but) it doesn't have to be that way. Most often our baggage comes from lies people have told us that keep us from achieving. Sometimes we believe those lies instead of believing in who we are.

Occasionally, we'll even tell ourselves that we deserve less than we really do. Why? Because we've come to believe the negative instead of the positive. It's time to turn that around. The new year is here and it's a time for new beginnings - and new positive thoughts. 

Replacing negative comments with positive thoughts takes practice. They also say that "practice makes perfect". This means that your outlook can improve with practice. And that puts the power of positive energy in your hands.
